The free Ninja Blocks platform makes it trivial to build web & mobile apps that talk to hardware.

Temperature & Humidity

Use the included Temperature & Humidity sensor to monitor your wine collection from anywhere in the world or use the Ninja Rules Engine to build the world's best thermostat.

Motion Sensor

Get peace of mind by using the included wireless motion sensor to build a security system that talks to the web or simply use it to let you know when the kids are at home.

Door Bell

Never miss a delivery again! When paired with Ninja Cloud, the included wireless door bell can notify you on any phone when someone is at the front door.

Window & Door Sensor

The wireless Window & Door sensor takes your security system to the next level. Stick it to your door and window and get notifications if they're opened.

Arduino Compatible

If you want to get your coding hands dirty, the Ninja Block contains an Arduino compatible micro-controller, that you can program using the official Arduino IDE.


Inside each Ninja Block is a credit card sized Open Source Computer called a BeagleBone running Ubuntu (Linux). You can even run your own apps on it!


You can control your Ninja Block's RGB LED eyes. Use our Web Hooks feature to change the color Ninja Block's eyes based on events like a server going down, or the stock market climbing.
